This year, #CityHallSelfie Day is set for Wednesday, Aug. 15. Whether you work for a city, county, special district, township, or other form of local government, Aug. 15 is the day to snap a selfie in front of your government building and post it loud and proud on your social media account of choice.
#CityHallSelfie Day is coordinated by ELGL, the Engaging Local Government Leaders Network, a big tent local government professional association that connects, communicates, and educates about local government public service.
It's not a competition per se—everyone wins when we take pride in local government service—but ELGL and Bang the Table will be partnering on an awards program for #CityHallSelfie takers in twenty categories that you can see on the ELGL website. Nominations and voting begin Aug. 17.
How do I participate?
- Stand in front of a government building—e.g. city hall, a public works garage, fire hall, or a picnic shelter.
- Snap a picture of yourself or a group.
- Share the photo on social media with the hashtag #CityHallSelfie.
- Want to compete for prizes and recognition? Check out the list of award categories linked above.
